Tropers / Bur

Go To

Born from the unlikely pairing of a very Italian Italian and a very British Brit, Bur has been marinated in a culturally bipolar household and has done so for over three decades. This has left her simultaneously eccentric and repressed.

Bur has a master's degree in business administration. She, like many students, started out with a very different life plan. Bur wanted to become a lab tech and eventually take over the world through biochemical means. However, advanced calculus got in the way, as well as a wonky thyroid, and now she's settled for taking over the world through corporate machinations. She's recently found herself working for a hospital, so biochemical domination was put back on the table.

Bur has a myriad of interests including:

Tropes that apply to Bur

  • Afraid of Needles - needs a cuddle bear to get a flu shot
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny! - took Ritalin for six years
  • Basement-Dweller - currently resides in the lower level of her parents' house
  • Beware the Nice Ones - has a very long fuse that you don't want to reach the end of
  • Bile Fascination - prone to this
  • Blood Knight - likes to play violent video games for the sheer joy of splattering as much blood and flesh around as possible
  • Bookworm - if her many overflowing bookcases are any indication
  • Bottle Fairy - becomes this at large social gatherings as a coping mechanism
  • Brilliant, but Lazy - while in high school Bur would often calculate how many points she had to get in a class so she could blow off a final project and still receive an A on her report cards
  • British Teeth - Bur's British blood ran strong in her teeth; she went through six years of braces and two surgeries to fix this, has had one tooth up and die on her (resulting in the installation of a false tooth), and was recently informed that the root of another tooth is shrinking and it will likely fall out before Bur reaches fifty
  • CloudCuckooLander - Seems to come across as this. Bur isn't sure if she is one or if she's just that bad at verbal communication. Her boss recently commented that communication with her took a learning curve.
  • Evil Laugh - quite good at these; Bur and her coworkers have a tendency to burst into evil laughter during company meetings
  • Forgetful Jones - left for her best friend's wedding without her bridesmaid dress
  • Forgets to Eat - far more often than she should
  • The Immune - Doesn't get stomach/digestive ailments. Ever.
  • Jerkass - with people she feels comfortable around; sometimes it takes a while before someone realizes that Bur being a dick means that she feels secure enough in their friendship to be able to rib them mercilessly.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down - is known to do this
  • Loners Are Freaks - gets this a lot
    • The Hermit - to the extent one can be while living in a suburb with her mother; has the goal of moving to a hermit hut
  • Manchild - accused of this
  • The Napoleon - has hints of this; Bur is undeniably short but her bloodthirsty nature rarely manifests outside of thoughts or writing
  • Not a Morning Person
  • Older Than They Look - when Bur turned 21 she was sincerely handed a 12-and-under menu while being treated to lunch by her sister
  • Overprotective Dad - had one; he was worried she'd be taken advantage of because of how small she is
  • No Social Skills
  • Not Good With People
  • Picky Eater - was one before going away to college
  • Ridiculous Procrastinator - has been known to complete final projects less than an hour before they are due
  • Stepford Smiler - a bit of this; Bur's default expression while holding a conversation is a smile, even if it's not a pleasant conversation

About time you got this page up and running; for second there I thought you liked being in limbo. Hope you enjoy the vandalism, I'll be back later to pick your brain for recipes. -Kino

I'm still trying to figure out what "Bur" means. Anyway, let us bitch together, comrade! -Takwin

Bur gains effect: Baby Spice
Pykrete cackles maniacally.

I keep thinking "Blur" when I see your name. - Bonsai Forest

As long as you're not being mean or bitchy (about me; I'm sort of fine with you bitching about other people/things) to me, I'd be up for just about any kind of discussion (though if I don't know much about something, I'll admit it and ask to move on to something I'm a bit more familiar with). - Metalitia

Oh yea, another Mad Scientist at heart type. -Vyctorian
